The Wanted have been touring and doing press recently for their new single “Walks Like Rihanna,” but somehow band member Siva Kaneswaran has had time to sign a modelling contract with top modelling agent, Next Models.
He started modelling at the age of 15, which led him to audition for The Wanted. Next Models also signed Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding and Rita Ora to its agency (so basically the hottest people ever…). He spoke to the British site The Telegraph that he is most looking forward to the fashion editorial shoots because those are very different from regular photo shoots.
It will be interesting to see how much time this will take away from the band. Hopefully not too much because they are already down one member temporarily. Nathan Sykes is still healing from his surgery and has had to miss a couple gigs recently. At the age of 19, he had to undergo surgery on his vocal cords but is hoping to get back into singing soon.
You will see Siva hopefully soon in magazine spreads, and every Sunday on the reality show The Wanted Life, documenting the band in LA, playing and recording new music, with a mix of partying in there as well. It’s on E! at 10E/7P.
